Similar to Windows 11, Windows 10 will receive major updates once a year

Microsoft has started rolling out Windows 10 version 21H2, November 2021 Update, and has also announced how upcoming major OS updates will be released. The company is going to push them once a year in line with the Windows 11 release schedule. So the next feature update for Windows 10 will be released in late 2022.

Microsoft has changed the Windows 10 release schedule to align with the Windows 11 release schedule of annual feature updates.

Obviously, Microsoft's plans for the future of Windows are mostly focused on Windows 11. But until October 14, 2025, the company will continue to support at least one version of Windows 10. Thus, during this time, there will be two or three functional updates.

However, you shouldn't expect major changes or new features for Windows 10. It is now entered the plain support stage.

  1. Hi,
    I stumbled on winaerotweaker today. I am very happy with it. When running it I see a left pane and a right pane, like in Windows file explorer. A big difference between both is that only with Winaero I see vertical dotted lines between folders and their child-folders if any. I have searched the internet for years to get this feature back into my Windows 10. Without success. Now I see said dotted lines in Winaero I suppose you like them as much as I do. Is it possible to get back the dotted lines in Windows Explorer?
    Thanks in advance
